CLEVELAND (Reuters) -A lawyer for two Ohio counties said on Monday that CVS Health Corp, Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc and Walmart Inc should fund an $878 million plan to address the opioid crisis there, as a first-of-its-kind trial got underway to determine the pharmacy chains' contribution.
I don't think much of this idea other that it's just another law firm looking to loot from whoever they can find.
The pharmacies are there to fill prescriptions, period. Once you accept the premise that the pharmacies have the legal duty to judge your prescriptions, it doesn't take much imagination the chaos that will come from that. They wouldn't be able to fill a prescription of 10 aspirin without threat of lawsuit that they should have known you have stomach problems.
Even if the pharmacies are somehow at fault, does it stand to reason that government gets the money? I mean, look at all the good that came to smokers from the uncountable of $billions looted from tobacco.
If you have a problem with a prescription, it's with the doctor.
